“Good value lunch”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were travelling around Scotland and needed to find somewhere to meet up with family for lunch, It was easy to find and park as it's out of the town centre in a business park. It was just as well we had booked as it got busy very quickly. The £ 7.95 lunch menu was very good value with a couple of things like fish and chips which cost a little more. Service was excellent. We had a problem with ne of the starters which was dealt with quickly and without fuss and an allowance was made on the bill. The room is very nice and we had a table overlooking the water.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to The River House. I am extremely glad that, despite the rather unfortunate incident with one of the starters your party received, you left our restaurant happy with your experience. Hopefully you will be travelling this way again soon - we would love to welcome you back to The River House.

“Excellent for Every Occasion”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I first ate at the River House in Stirling for business lunch - convient for motorway and lots of parking.
However the meal was sooo good and service first class that I started to go there for other occasions.

I now regulalry go along with Ladies Who Do ...lunch and dinner! Selection of food suits us all and the staff always greet us warmly.

I have also celebrated a couple of family birthdays and again Greg and staff made us very welcome and we felt very well looked after.

Finally, have to mention that the atmosphere in the evening is fabulous for a romantic meal too!!!

Thank for taking the time to review our restaurant. All honest customer feedback - positive or negative - is essential in the continued development of our team.

We are extremely disappointed that you feel let down by the quality of our complimentary vegetable selection and have discussed this with the kitchen team.

“Couldn't fault it in any way”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

My daughter and I went here for a meal early on Thursday evening. The food was sublime. We had seafood risotto and 5 spiced duck, (cooked perfectly, as they ask how you would like it done), which were delicious. The portion sizes were great and we were struggling to finish it all. Followed up with a divine chocolate and caramel tart (cos we couldn't resist). The tablet with the coffee was a nice touch. Lovely decor, very comfy seating and the toilets are the best I've seen in a long time. Prices are very reasonable for what you get and the loyalty cards are a great idea too. We'll definitely be back. Thanks to all the staff who obviously take a pride in what they do.
